Might be great timing for me. I'm close to deciding. Wondering if black is all that much warmer under hot Summer sun? Was thinking frozen gray, although black would blend better with the bike (2018).
Hi Danny - great to hear! Black may be nominally warmer than the Frozen Gray, but probably not significantly. All panniers to some extent will heat up fairly well, but silver would be a good option if you want to deflect as much heat as possible.

Alternatively- how hard would it be to paint the tops with a rattle can, wondering if I am a good enough painter to make it look nice.
We've had guys spray pannier bodies and/or lids with truck bedliner and it's looked great. Paint would be a good option as well, although you might want to scuff the smooth powercoat surface a bit. You could also get the lids powdercoated (you can coat right over the existing coating).

Am I correct, the silver listed means no coating at all, giving black rub marks on my gear?
The silver color is still a full powdercoat inside and out - no oxidation or smudging on the contents of your panniers!

Not wild about going wider, prefer the 40 liter to the 45 liter set.
The 40L set will fit within the stock handlebar width, while the 45L system is just slightly outside (about 0.75" on each side). To be honest, if I'm in a situation where I'm 0.75" away from anything, it may not end well anyway. Functionally, the larger cases work well on the road, even when lane splitting.

Am I reading right that the Evo is $100 bucks more then the original? Making this deal $200 better then Evos?
You are correct in that the EVOs are $100 more than the regular price of the standard Defenders. With the YST.com deal on in-stock items through the end of this month, the standard Defenders are $200 less than the EVOs!

Any other questions, please let me know.

Thanks!

With the introduction of the new EVO series, we're excited to have two different systems to offer Super Tenere riders - the standard Defenders for those that want all the features and strength of a proven BUMOT design at a lower price point, and the new Defender EVOs which bring a great new aesthetic design to the BUMOT line-up.

That said, our warehouse didn't double in size, and so we need to make some space for the next inbound shipment of both Defender and Defender EVO systems. To help make room on the shelf, we're offering a YamahaSuperTenere.com forum special discount of $100 off any in-stock standard Defender (non-EVO) pannier system through February 28th (or earlier, if current stock sells out). We have stock right now of 45L systems in all three colors (black, Frozen Gray, and silver), as well as stock of the 40L systems in black and silver. As always, pannier systems ship for free in the Lower 48 USA!

To take advantage of this deal, just add the system to your cart, click the "Shopping Cart" icon, and enter coupon code YSTFORUM. You'll see the $100 discount applied to your Super Tenere Defender system, and once the order is completed, it will ship out same or next business day.

Any questions, please feel free to call the shop at (585) 310-ADVM or send an email.

Thanks!

Jason




Hi guys...only a couple of days left to take advantage of the $100 off promo! We do still have some systems in stock, so take advantage of the cold weather and save a few bucks. :) Any questions, please let me know.

We've got another big shipment arriving from BUMOT in a couple of weeks and I need to make some room on the shelves, so we're going to sweeten the pot a bit on the standard Defender 45L systems. In addition to a $100 discount off the usual price of $1,199.99, we're going to throw in a rack-mounted toolbox in the matching color to your panniers at no additional cost. That's a total savings of $220 off our current prices, and $320 less than the EVOs!

The discounted sale price is already reflected on the site, but you'll need to add coupon code TOOLBOX to get the rack-mounted toolbox thrown in for free. The deal is only applicable to current 45L systems in stock...although there's not a specific end date, once current stock of a specific color sells out, the price will revert back to the original $1,199.99 (without toolbox).

Any questions, feel free to email or call the shop at (585) 310-ADVM.

Thanks!

For those that like discounts but want the slimmer 40L / 36L panniers, we've extended the $100 discount to the smaller size on in-stock standard Defender systems. The free toolbox promo above only applies to the 45L / 41L size, but you can still get a healthy savings and get your bike setup right for the the 2019 season!

Thanks...

I really don't want to take this thread off-track, but wanted to call attention to proposed US legislation that could affect ADV riders, some popular ADV bikes, and a significant number of ADV-centric businesses (including ours).

BUMOT luggage systems and accessories are made in Europe (specifically Sofia, Bulgara), so I was more than a little concerned when I saw the US Trade Representatives were proposing a 100% tariff on 500-700cc motorcycles, as well as all motorcycle parts and accessories imported from Europe. I take a number of calls from riders every day, and while I am very frequently asked for a discount, I've never been asked if the prospective customer could pay more. If the proposed tariff on motorcycle accessories imported from Europe is enacted, the only possible outcome is that costs would go up for everyone.

So what can you do?

Fire up your computer and make your voice heard. You can use this link to provide a comment to the Office of the United States Trade Representative responsible for proposing this. They have requested to hear your views on the following:

• The specific products to be subject to increased duties, including whether products listed in the Annex should be retained or removed, or whether products not currently on the list should be added.
• The level of the increase, if any, in the rate of duty.
• The appropriate aggregate level of trade to be covered by additional duties.
• Whether increased duties on particular products might have an adverse effect upon U.S. stakeholders, including small businesses and consumers.

Hopefully if there's enough hew and cry from the constituents, we can (at the very least) get 500-700cc motorcycles (HTS 8711.40.30) and motorcycle parts and accessories (HTS 8714.10.00) removed from the list of proposed tariffs.

Political mode off!
